Outdated: Java SE 1.6 Update 2 Installation
This section describes how to install Java SE 1.6 Update 2.
To learn JDBC, you have to a copy of JDK (Java Development Kit) installed on your machine. The latest version of JDK is JDK 6u2 (Java(TM) SE Development Kit 6 Update 2), which is also called Java SE 6 (Java Standard Edition 6). Here is what I did to download and install JDK 6u2 on my local machine.
To test the installation, open a command window to try the java command. If you are getting the following output, your installation was ok:
C:\>\progra~1\java\jdk1.6.0_02\bin\java -version java version "1.6.0_02" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_02-b06) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.6.0_02-b06, mixed mode, sharing)
